My husband and I LOVED this recipe! Very easy to make. We had been searching for a really good fajita recipe, and this is pretty darn close. Next time, I would definitely add some salt to the marinade, as well as a couple of minced garlic cloves. And we added more peppers and onions than the recipe called for, and then cooked them in a "basket" on the grill. Mmmmmm!!!!
